Vietnan
The agreement
By RALPH HARRIS
Reuters Staff Writer
WASHINGTON-Diplomatic experts yesterday
warned that the Vietnam settlement is so fragile
and full of snares that an enduring peace cannot
be guaranteed.
The settlement, to be signed in Paris tomorrow
a few hours before a ceasefire goes into effect at
7 p.m. EST was welcomed by some as a means
of extricating the United States from involvement
? in a long, costly and highly unpopular war.
But while some saw a silver lining, many dip-

lomatic experts, who have closely followed the
peace negotiations felt that the prospects were
highly uncertain-some called them very slim-
that the Saigon government and the Viet Cong
could come to any agreement on the political
future of Vietnam. The experts recalled the years
of implacable hatred between the two sides and
the refusal of each even to acknowledge that the
other exists.
Presidential Adviser Henry Kissinger, who
reached the settlement with North Vietnam's Le
Duc Tho said the agreement would work if the
Vietnamese wanted it to work.
The question was whether the Saigon govern-
ment and the Viet Cong intended to try to reach

Thieu, the battles
By AP and Reuters
SAIGON-President Nguyen Van Thieu braced
his police and propaganda chiefs for an all-out
political war after this weekend's ceasefire.
At a national convention, Thieu told 500 top
police officers that they must meet force with
greater force and warned, "We cannot rely too
much on international treaties, for the communists
do not respect them. Nor can we rely too much
on the international ceasefire commission."
The new political war "which may last six
months, one year or two years, will be very im-
portant and will decide the political future of
Vietnam," he said.
Early signs of the "troubles" which lie ahead1
came from Hoang Duc Nha, Thieu's info chief.
~Iait&

At a press conference, Nha stated that Saigon
sees the Viet Cong as the greatest obstacle to
elections in South Vietnam.
As long as one North Vietnamese soldier is left
in South Vietnam, he added, the South Vietnamese
people "cannot exercise their right to self determi-
nation in a free way."
On the battlefields, communist activity sharply
increased in the 24 hours ending at dawn Thursday
(Saigon time).
A South Vietnamese military spokesman said
that 112 "communist-initiated incidents" were re-
ported, a level matched once earlier this year,
on Jan. 3.
Meanwhile, 16 Soviet-made rockets crashed
into the Bien Hoa Air Base area yesterday, killing
a young U. S. Marine on guard duty just two days
before the scheduled Vietnam cease-fire.
"The war's still on," said a U.S. commander.

'Police brutality?
DETROIT-A coalition of predominately black community
organizations has asked the U.S. House and Senate Judiciary
committees to investigate the Detroit Police Department for
alleged violation of civil and constitutional rights. The United
Black Coalition also called for abolition of the controversial
police undercover unit known as STRESS. The coalition referred
to the police manhunt for suspects in the shooting of six STRESS
police officers as "a continuing and escalating denial of human
rights." Police Commissioner John Nichols denied Wednesday
that the decoy unit had employed illegal tactics or unnecessarily
harassed Detroit's black community during the manhunt, and
he said he would not interrupt the unit's activities.

eulogzed
i rites
By The Associated Press and Reuters
The nation said farewell to Presi-
dent Lyndon Baines Johnson yes-
terday with public tributes and
formal church prayer.
All federal and many state and
local government offices and
schools closed for at least part of
the day, and millions watched the
funeral rites on television.
In Washington, the coffin bearing
Johnson's body was moved by
hearse at mid-morning from the
rotunda of the Capitol, where it had
lain in state Wednesday and
throughout the night, to the Na-
tional City Christian Church for
final rites.
At the service, Marvin Watson,
a friend of the former president,
spoke of Johnson's "devotion to
his country" and his "restraint in
the uses of power."
He praised Johnson as a leader

with a deep faith, who "believed
that good men together could ac-
complish anything, even the most
impossible of dreams."
Lady Bird Johnson sat in a front-
row seat. Alongside were the John-
son daughters, Luci and Lynda,
their husbands, Patrick Nugent and
Charles Robb, and grandson Patrick
Lyndon Nugent. President Nixon
and his wife Pat sat on an aisle
at the hour-long service.
The coffin was then taken to
Andrews Air Force Base.
Five hundred people watched the
brief air base ceremony before the
jet took off for the central Texas
hill country, and burial services
near Johnson's "LBJ" ranch.
The former President died of a
heart attack at the "LBJ" ranch
Monday afternoon at the age of 64.

Looking for that other glove? Don't bother. ~
The University now has its own glove tree,
and you can help start the country's next
fad by simply taking a glove you like and u.
wearing a mis-matched pair. -
The tree was started by Geography Prof. .,.
John Kolars, who kept finding lost gloves .~
and accumulating them in his office. .6 ~ .~
Not only does the glove tree serve as a
-~" ..riv...
kind of centrally-located lost-and-found, but
Kolars has told his sleepy 9 a. m. students
he feels one shouldn't have to wear a -
matched pair, and if hands are cold, the tree
is there to meet the need.
Christine Filbey, '74, stops to admire the
glove tree, on the north side of Angell Hall. N
So, if you find an extra glove you don't
need, or lose one and are freezing your left
little finger off - go by Ann Arbor's newest
variety of flora, and help Kolar's ideas take
root.

abolished
By SUE STEPHENSON
The greatest increase in
Resident Hall rates in two
years was approved yesterday
by the Housing Policy Com-
mittee. The ten member
committee, chaired by Direc-
tor of University Housing
John Feldkamp, passed the
proposed increase with three
affirmative votes. There was
one negative vote, two absten-
sions and four absent mem-
bers. The increase is subject
to Regental approval.
For 1973-74, a standard dorm's
rates will increase approximately
$102 for a single to $1,448.26, $64
for a double to $1,298.44 and $25
for a triple to $1,148.62.
The rate for all rooms at Fletch-
er Hall will increase approximate-
ly $14 to $481.24 while the rates in
cooperative doubles and suits for
four in Oxford housing will in-
crease approximately $50 to a total
$969.29 and $16 to a total $687.81
respectively. The rates at Baits
will increase approximately $20
for most rooms.
After the decision, Feldkamp
said it "wouldn't hurt to recom-
mend a rate study committee."
IHowever, he said earlier a similar
study had determinedthat the res-
identstpreferred an increase in
rates to a cut in services.
The committee also voted yes-
terday to eliminate damage de-
posits.
When the state legislature last
month passed the bill to regulate
payment, repayment, use and in-
vestment of security deposits,
housing officials decided to make
some adjustments in their present
program of damage deposits.
In the past, damage deposits
($100 for standard dorms and $45
for Northwood apartments) served
two purposes other than merely as
damage deposits: application fees
and security deposits.: The latter
insured the University that the
student whohad signed thelease
would definitely live there and if
a student withdrew from his lease,
he would lose his damage deposit.

BOOSTS FINANCES:
Work- study

U,

By ANN RAUMA

When college expenses gobble
up money too quickly, students
may turn to the campus work-
study program for help. Needy
students can work at an interest-
ing job provided through the
University and cut their ex-
penses down to -a more manage-
able size.
"We try to recruit creative,
educational jobs in each stu-
dent's field of interest," said
Beverly Tucker, supervisor of the
program. "The interest in the
past has been in science and
technical jobs. Now student in-
terest is in community interac-
tion."
According to Tucker, 325 of
this term's 900 positions are still
available. She predicts 250 to
300 jobs will be open for Spring-
Summer term. The number of
jobs will increase for next year's
Fall-Winter terms, due to ap-
proval of $1 million in federal
funds. This expands the pro-
gram from its current funding
of $700,000.
Of these jobs, part time posi-

for full time work-study. These
students work 40 hours per week.
They are required to save 60 per
cent to 80 per cent of their net
earnings for future educational
expenses.
The wages for all work-study
jobs varies from $1.75 to $3.50
per hour, according to the skills
and experience required for the
position.
This work-study award is 80
. per cent federal funds and 20 per

cent employer's pay. It may be
part of the total financial aid
package including grants, loans
and work-study. This combined
resource total will not exceed in-
dividual financial need.
Financial need is determined
by an application for financial
aid. and either a family financial
statement or an affidavit of non-
support.
First priority goes to students
from families with yearly income

4uents
under $12,000.
The program started five years
ago with one student in the pro-
ject. Now 575 students are em-
ployed through work-study.
Applications for Spring-Sum-
mer work-study are due March
1. The deadline for Fall-Winter
applications is May 1.
Applications for over 1,000 jobs
in the program will be available
Feb. 1, through the Work-Study
Office, Student Activities Bldg.

CHRIST IN OUR TIME
One view of the Divine Light

By MARTIN PORTER
The brothers and sisters sit in silent medi-
tation.
A large vegetarian dinner covers the din-
ing room table at the Divine Light Informa-
tion Center on Ashley Street. The clean white
walls that reflect the flickering , of an oil
lamp are bare except for a bright blue tap-
estry of Jesus Christ at the head of the table.
Small green plants and pictures of the young

of the fifteen year old guru Maharaj Ji, had
visited the center. Paul adds that it is un-
usual for crocuses to do so well in the mid-
dle of winter. Kathy interjects "the light of
Maharaj Ji is brighter and warmer than any
sun in the universe.
The Divine Light Mission was officially
founded in 1960 under the "Lotus feet" of
Shri Hans Ji Maharaj the then "Perfect
Master." Upon his death in 1966, the story

I have come to reveal the Light."
Guru Maharaj J
Five million people in India, and over 40,-
000 in the United States believe that this ado-
lescent is the Christ in our time. He has
bulging jowls and, according to Time maga-
zine, a "passion for squirt guns and triple
Creature Features horror movies." His fol-
lowers are requested to shun drugs, sex, to-
bacco and alcohol. For this he offers per-
petual peace. To his fifteen or so premies
